RED a company that makes Red cameras has launched REDRAY a true 4K media player with HFR 3D support.
Are we ready for it? Blu-ray has just recently gone mainstream and there are many people who don’t even own a HD TV. To play 4K content on REDRAY you need to buy a 4K display to go with it.

REDRAY features the ability to play 4K files as well as upscale HD files to Ultra High-Definition resolution (4096×2160). REDRAY connects to 4K displays using 1x 1.4 HDMI output or 4x HDMI 1.3 outputs, with an additional HDMI output for 7.1 channel audio (for HD displays, REDRAY uses 1x HDMI 1.3 output). REDRAY also supports 3D playback at high frame rates (48-60fps) — more than twice that of traditional HD plug-and-play 3D devices.
REDRAY has a built-in 1TB hard drive, SD cards a USB port, and an internal 1TB drive. And an Internet download option so lots of ways to get 4K content in there and store it.
This all sounds good but there are is a issues. The Redray Player will only playback 4K content if it is encoded in RED’s own RED format its can also read mp4 but only at 1080p or 720p.

REDRAY costs USD 1450 (roughly £945), more than twice as much as Sony’s FMP-X1 which has been given a price tag of USD 699 (around £455).
